While BOTOX is the most well-known injectable wrinkle relaxer, Xeomin is another brand of purified botulinum type A that can be the better choice for some patients.

Like other wrinkle relaxers, Xeomin works by temporarily freezing the facial muscle whose frequent contractions are causing the patient's dynamic wrinkles in areas like the forehead or around the eyes and mouth. Oklahoma City cosmetic surgeons, Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin will listen to each patient during the consultation and based on the patient's needs, concerns, and aesthetic goals, they may suggest a treatment plan with Xeomin wrinkle relaxer injections.

Jessica has been working with my wife on all her procedures and has always maintained a professional attitude. Her attention to detail is very comforting and definitely makes every visit a pleasant one. She was most helpful in my wife deciding which size implant was appropriate. I would recommend Dr. Nuveen and his staff to anyone who is considering a procedure.


Patients in the Oklahoma City area who want to treat their wrinkles and other signs of facial aging are encouraged to visit Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates for a consultation and personalized treatment plan.

What to Expect

Xeomin is an in-office procedure that is usually performed in less than 30 minutes. Prior to treatment, ink marks will be made to the injection sites on the face, and a fine needle will deliver the product directly into the skin. Xeomin is most effective in treating frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead furrows, and wrinkles around the chin area.

Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates is an awesome place! All of the staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Jessica is absolutely amazing!!


There is no pain during the injection, but numbing creams may be applied to ease any discomfort caused by the injection prick. Mild swelling and redness may appear on the injection area, which usually subsides after a few hours. After a Xeomin treatment, there is no downtime, and most patients may resume normal activities.

    Xeomin FAQs

    Is botox better?

    Xeomin is purely botulinum toxin type a unlike botox (or dysport), which has additives. This decreases the chances of the patient’s immunity to the medication. There is also the ease of distribution as xeomin doesn’t require refrigeration. Other than that, both provide the same effect in treating facial cosmetic issues.

    Is this safe?

    In the hands of a well-experienced practitioner, muscle relaxants are safe. The effects are also temporary, so if the patient is dissatisfied with the results, they can be rest assured that these results will not last forever. Xeomin has been proven by the fda to be safe and effective to use.

    Combined with fillers?

    A growing trend nowadays is a “liquid facelift” in which both muscle relaxers and derma fillers are combined in a single treatment. It is a noninvasive way of rejuvenating the facial appearance without surgery. Most patients who prefer this method believe the temporary and safe results outweigh the risks of a surgical procedure.
